This is the first post in what I hope to be a series of posts on exploring the possibilities in using the Oculus Rift alongside a UAV. The plan in the long run is to create a GCS for the Oculus Rift or other HMDs that gives you a feeling of actually sitting up in the air being able to look…Continue
I'm happy to share with you today that this afternoon we had the first flight of a copter using ardupilot running in Linux (the evolution of the work performed this summer through the BeaglePilot project on the ardupilot code). It's particularly a…Continue
My name is Rusty and I am from BlueRobotics. We've spent the last nine months developing an underwater thruster for marine robotics that is high-performing, resistant to saltwater, and affordable for hobbyists. We've used it to propel a few…Continue
The requirements for the operation of unmanned aircrafts for commercial and semi-professional purposes have changed fundamentally in the past years in Europe and worldwide.
The regulations will get even more strictly in the future.
Depending on the application, the weight, the…
Here are the 5 entities supporting the BeaglePilot project (a.k.a. push the AP_HAL_Linux of ardupilot):Continue
Yesterday at BeaglePilot's weekly meeting we had great progress :):
ArduPilot using Arduino 1.0.5 and avr-gcc 4.8.1
I've merged the ardupilot code with the latest Arduino 1.0.5-r2 code (git version which is well on the way to 1.0.6), plus the avr-gcc 4.8.1 from the Arduino 1.5.x development branch.
Net result is the "latest" Arduino version, with ardupilot extensions and a…Continue
Lately I have been following the kikstarter project “The pocket Drone” which is having a huge impact.
First of all I am a bit pissed off because in the kikstarter project…
The MaxiSwift flying wing has donne successfully a low altitude flight autonomous mission (< 30m AGL) under flight plan piloted by the ArduPlane v2.73-xp1. A color camera onboard with an OSD display in real time the video of the flight and the data on the ground station screen. (Wind 7 km/h, gusting 15 km/h)
- Avionic setup:
- ArduFlyer v2.5.2…
This is just a temporary search engine for the Diy Drones Forums that I built until Ning 3.0 fixes our current forum search engine. The DiyDrones.com Forum search…Continue

When I gain 14 more youtube subscribers youtube will allow me to use their Live Feed Feature. When that happens i'm going to start posting 4-6 live stream youtube sessions a week. The subjects of the Live Casts will include tutorials on how to use free CAD software to make blueprints/schematics for your drone projects. The Live Sessions are going to be predetermined for the…Continue
I have written a tutorial on how to program your own AutoPilot/Flight Controller from scratch using an arduino/ArduPilot/RaspberryPi. The tutorial will walk you through everything from reading the RC radio and controlling the motors through to how the PIDs are stacked on top of each other to…Continue
